Jadau jewelry is Mughal in origin and is distinguished by a complex method (Kundan) of setting colored gemstones in gold/silver. The technique is very advanced and requires artisans of great skill, usually working in teams, to accomplish.
Jadau is a technique that also uses Polki, Meenakari and Kundan but the technique varies a bit from Kundan work. Jad means to be embedded and that is the technique used by artisans who craft this style of Jewelry.
Jadau jewelry is regal and suits any Indian bride/bridesmaid beautifully. Besides, modern crossovers and Bollywood have ensured that Jadau has found a place in the bridal heart. After all, what bride doesn’t want to look resplendent on her wedding day?
Jadau carries the legacy of Indian jewelry and it is a legacy that is no longer limited to Indian shores. This just goes to show the enduring popularity of this craft and the reason every bride must consider having at least one such piece among her jewelry.
